Addonics AD4SAHMSA Dual Hyper HDD-mSATA SSD hybrid PCIe ctr

This Dual Hybrid HDD - mSATA SSD is a two port SATA III PCI-e host controller combined with two mSATA (mini SATA) SSD slots. It offers the benefits of high performance of a small capacity mSATA SSD and the low cost and high-capacity of a standard hard drive. The controller can be configured to operate in either hybrid mode or standard mode. In Hybrid mode, the controller enhances the performance of any ordinary SATA hard drive by the faster speed of a mSATA SSD (Solid State Drive). This significantly improves the boot up time of your system as well as the overall read/write performance of the hard drive, great for storage IO intensive applications such as gaming, video editing, CAD/CAM or high performance workstations. Depending on the configuration, up to two hybrid drives or four separate drives consisting of two mSATA SSD and two hard drives can be connected to a computer. In addition, the connected mSATA SDDs and hard drives can be set up as two RAID1, RAID0 or combined into a RAID 10. For more detail on how the hybrid mode operates and the benefit, please click on the following link to read the white paper from Marvell, the ASIC engine supplier for this controller.

In standard mode, the connected mSATA SSD and the SATA hard drive can be set up to operate as two individual drives or combined to form a RAID 0 or RAID 1 group . The two SATA ports are Port Multiplier compatible and is SATA III compliant with maximum throughput up to 6Gbps.


Note: the mSATA SSD shown in the diagram is for illustration purpose and is not part of the product


When operate in the standard mode, the controller can be used for the following applications:

  • To connect two mSATA SSDs and two SATA hard drives as four separate storage devices to any system via a PCIe slot
  • The two mSATA SSDs and the two SATA hard drives connected to the controller can be combined into two separate RAID 1 or RAID 0 drive volume or as a single RAID10 volume

  • Increase system overall performance by combining a small capacity high performance mini SATA SSD and a low-cost high-capacity hard drive.
  • Supported modes of operation:
  • HybridDrive (HDD+SSD) mode: Safe Mode (Mirrored Protection) or Capacity Mode (Cost-Optimized)HybridDrive mode enables 80 percent of the performance of a solid state drive (SSD) on any SATA hard drive at one-third the cost of SSD
  • Standard mode : two Hardware RAID0, RAID1, one RAID10 or as four (4) individual drives
  • Install into PCIe 4X slot
  • Two mSATA SSD sockets and two SATA ports
  • Port Multiplier Compatible
  • Maximum 6Gbits/sec*
  • Hot swappable - drive can be removed and added without system shut down or restart **
  • Native Command Queuing (NCQ) support
  • SATA III maximum transfer rate of 6.0Gbps*
  • Compatible with any SATA I, II or III hard drive
  • Includes PCIe Low Profile and regular size two Brackets for installing into standard height or low profile system
  • 2 LED connections for drive activity
  • Supported OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 2000 and above

*To achieve the maximum throughput, the PCI-Express slot must be version 2.0 or higher. Older system with PCI-Express 1.0 slot will limit the speed to 2.5 Gbps. In standard mode, performance per port may decrease under individual drive configuration if both ports are transferring data simultaneously due to the limited throughput of the PCI-Express slot. Please visit following web page for more information of ExpressCard v1.0 and v2.0

** Hot swapping hard drive has been tested on Windows OS only.
